Nexus 5 teardown reveals plastic clips, little glue and standard screws

The Nexus 5 has been the center of attention lately. Thankfully, we are on the side of official chatter as opposed to the rumors and as such, the folks at iFixit have recently shared their Nexus 5 teardown. This time around we are seeing a 15-step process that ultimately resulted in a repairability score of 8 out of 10. Perhaps more important, this teardown also confirmed some earlier rumors.

NVIDIA SHIELD iFixit teardown gives a look at the inside

We recently reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD and while we took a rather thorough look at the system itself as well as what it is capable of doing in terms of gaming there was something we couldn't do -- open it up and take a look at the interior guts. Thankfully though, there was another group willing to do just that. That group is the familiar iFixit and they have recently opened up the SHIELD.

The interesting, and perhaps somewhat unsurprising part here is that the teardown revealed very little on the inside of the plastic.
